92-94 POINTS: Josh Raynolds, Vinous
"Deep ruby. Vibrant aromas of black raspberry, cherry cola and violet, developing olive and cured tobacco nuances with air. Juicy, focused and subtly sweet, offering taut red and dark berry flavors that become deeper and spicier with air. The floral note comes back strongly on the finish, which features slow-building tannins and a touch of succulent herbs."
